    With the bathroom playing a deciding factor in a guest’s judgement in whether a hotel meets their expectations or not, the onus is on the designer to get the look and feel of the space just right.

    Choosing sanitaryware from a respected high-quality brand such as Laufen not only ensures that there will be ample choice and flexibility, but also means that pieces can be customised to fit the space available. This attention to detail will not be forgotten by the discerning hotel guest and will do wonders for the hotel’s reputation.
    Swiss manufacturer Laufen, which has been a market-leader in providing design, quality and function for the domestic bathroom for over 100 years, and is now rapidly growing its presence in the hotel sector, with the introduction of products specifically designed to create luxurious, spa-like retreats that offer hotel guests the last word in comfort and relaxation. From iconic pieces that will be the focal point of the room through to space-saving solutions for the more compact environment there is something in the Laufen collection to suit any hotel bathroom.

    From its state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Switzerland Laufen is able to provide an important creative element; customisation, that extra tool for creativity that will enhance the overall design by achieving a bespoke solution. For example, many of the company’s washbasins can not only be cut to the required length to create a seamless finish even in a recess, but can also be cut at angle to incorporate a mirror or wall division. Living City washbasins can even have bespoke designs added to the shelf.

    “The beauty of choosing Laufen products is that there are no limitations; we give designers the tools they need to be creative at every level, from a two-star hotel environment right through to a five-star, and beyond,” comments Ilker Hussein, Laufen’s Manager for Global Projects. “We’re empowering designers to do what they do best – design and inspire.”

    “Our Global Project Team works to support hotel solutions for customers all over the world and as part of the Roca Group, designers have the opportunity to browse the Laufen portfolio for themselves and realise the full potential of the products at the Roca London Gallery.”
